Odd air filter question - pic included

Post by Steve_S »

OK, went to put a fresh air filter on my '81 GL1100, and it wouldn't fit. compared the old with the new, and the old one has angled sides. New one has straight sides. The new one did fit on my '83 GL1100, fwiw...

Old one looks like a K&N maybe? Put a little square on it to show the angle.

Not quite sure what to do here....

from your post it is not clear what fitment problem you are having with the new filter.

this is the problem i had a few years back and how i went about correcting it.
